Nappies that actually fit a 6/7lb baby

Postby happytails » Thu Sep 30, 2010 8:30 pm

What nappies do you recommend that will actually fit a 6-7lb baby properly. Trim ones are a must really (not after tots/little lambs etc as they were far too bulky and big on my 6lb 9oz DD.

Have a feeling i havent enough really small ones in my stash for this baby :-?

TIA

Possibly not your cup of tea, but the prefold nappies we used to start with were quite trim.

XS fuzzi bunz, XS BG aio's, swaddlebees newborn OV, xs motherease sandies, size 0 nippa bambeasy would all fit IMO as they were all too small for Roo and at his lowest weight he was 8lb10oz. The ME and size 0's lasted 2 weeks.

What about some teenyfits?

I'm not going to bother posting a list of nappies that might fit as you have some good lists there. But I will say I collected lots of those nappies, expecting to have another 6/7lb baby (Bella was 6lb12oz at birth) and Jake came out at 8lb6oz and his tiny nappies lasted until he was 4 weeks old :(

Have you been given any indications that this one may be small as well?

It's hard to know how many of which size isn't it?

Nicky was 7lb 2oz, which took us completely by surprise since his brothers were 8lb 8oz and 8lb 13oz. Size 0 nippa bimbles were my favourite newborn nappy on him. They fit so well and I dyed all mine funky colours. They fitted him until he was about 10 weeks. :-D Zac didn't fit Newborn nappies at all and went straight into size 1. :roll:

Teenyfits are great, they are designed for preemies (5lbs) to about 12lbs.

Either that, or if you want fitteds, lots of the WAHM are nice and trim, and newborns don't need a lot of absorbtion. Or we often used folded up muslins under a wrap if we wanted a trim fit under certain clothes.
